May 11th, 2010. Sticklebacks at 11:30 pm.



unidentified fish. My guess is a marine stickleback. This footage was shot with a video camera pointed at the live feed to the left (on a laptop) on Friday, May7th at about 11 pm while the aquabus was docked.update May 8th: I just did some research and it would seem that these fish are G. a. williamsoni: "G. a. williamsoni the unarmored threespine stickleback, is found only in North America; its recognised range is southern California, though there are isolated reports of it occurring in British Columbia and Mexico;"(from Wikipedia)


Stills taken from the video showing distinctive colouring and the characteristic spiny fins.



Minnows. This footage was shot with a video camera pointed at the live feed to the left (on a laptop) on Friday, May7th at about 2 pm while the aquabus was docked.
     
note: This footage was shot with a video camera pointed at the live feed above (on a laptop) on April 15th from 9:20 pm.-10pm many small eels have been appearing nightly during and after this time, but tonight there were many more than most nights. Some are visible in the distance, while others get very close to the camera. +30 counted in 10 minutes. One viewer noted barbels at the mouth and deeply serrated dorsal fins. note: This footage was shot with a video camera pointed at the live feed above (on a laptop) on May 3rd, 2010 at 8pm.

     

This movie was shot at the dock. It shows a mass of very small crustations that we have noted both at the dock and out on the water of False Creek. In the open water, as the boat makes it's way through false creek, these creatures tend to create pink clouds at the surface of False Creek.
